The blazing rays of the Bankim genius fell on the Bengali literature at a time when pundits of the Sanskrit generation and upcoming English-educated youths of Bengal both treated Bengali language with derogation and disdain as unsuitable and unsophisticated for expression of higher thoughts or literary pursuits.

Serialisation in 1964 of his English novel RajMohan's Wife in the Indian Field provided a mere hint of a talented author in the making. His first Bengali novel Durgeshnandini written between 1862-1864 and published in 1865 ushered in a new era in Indian literature. Severely criticised though, by the conservatives, it was enormously popular as is evidenced by its thirteen editions (in those days) in three decades after its publication.
